Mental illness is an insidious public health issue, and one that—because of its infinite incarnations and variety of treatments—can be a challenge to address in an effective manner. Moodnotes hopes to instill healthy emotional habits by asking users to record their daily disposition on a seven-point scale that runs from big ol’ smile to bummed-out frown. Each time they enter their feeling, prompts pop up to stoke further contemplation. Everything from short guided journaling to identifying negative thinking habits is covered in the approach, which combines Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) with positive psychology to encourage proactive self-reflection and help people better enjoy life.
